I don’t know about you but I love love love potato pancakes!! With Grandma’s homemade catsup is the best! I apologize for not locating the recipe for the catsup. I could eat these each and every day! Yummy!
PERFECT POTATO PANCAKES
4 large potatoes (about 3 pounds)
1/2 cup finely diced onion
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Maple syrup or applesauce
Peel and shred potatoes; place in a bowl of cold water. Line a colander with cheese cloth or a clean thin dish towel. Drain potatoes into cloth and squeeze out as much moisture as possible. Place potatoes in mixing bowl. Beat eggs; add potatoes along with onion, flour, salt and pepper. Mix well. Heat 1/3 cup salad oil in a skillet until hot. Drop potato mixture 1/4 cup at a time into hot oil, about 3″ apart. Flatten with pancake turner to make a 4″ pancake. Cook pancakes until golden brown, turn and cook other side, about 4 minutes total. Remove to a cookie sheet lined with paper towel to drain. Repeat until all pancakes are cooked. Serve immediately or place in a warm oven until ready to serve. Top with maple syrup or applesauce.
Yield: about 16 pancakes
I like how this recipe says to put pancakes on a towel to drain. That’s funny. We usually ate them straight from the pan. 🙂 This recipe came from a magazine called Reminisce.
Here is another potato pancake recipe that was my great-grandmother’s.
Grated potatoes (raw)
1 egg for 3 potatoes
Add salt and fry in lard or oil.
There is no flour, no onions, no milk.
Heat oil or lard and fry as you wish.
Have a blessed day!
